While I wait I have taken another couple of photos, just in case someone sees something obvious in them.
I normally find the datasheets for the capacitors and then check the dimensions of the capacitors with the spec sheets. Normally any fakers cannot be bothered to make them to the size of the dimensions of the specs. Any variation of the dimensions from the datasheet will point to fake capacitors. They just put a plastic covering denoting the value make and model number of a cheap rubbish quality capacitor! Normally the Chinese manufacture these crap fake capacitors.
